After her marriage that year to actor Lee J Cobb, Beverley (sometimes billed as Beverly) ventured into mainstream cinema. She had prominent roles in Black Magic/Meeting at Midnight and The Master Race (both 1944), but her starring role opposite Cornel Wilde in Stairway for a Star (1946, but begin much earlier) was seen by only a few.
